A Florida woman was being held hostage in her home by her boyfriend on Tuesday, and a Pizza Hut helped save her life.

Cheryl Treadway and her kids were being threatened by a man named Ethan Nickerson at knifepoint and were not allowed to leave.

Nickerson also took away her cell phone, but he let her use it briefly to order a pizza, according toMyFox Tampa.

That’s when she used some quick thinking to write “911 hostage help” in the comments section of her order.



A chef at the Pizza Hut noticed the strange message and the restaurant quickly alerted the police.

The suspect was then arrested and charged, while Treadway and her kids escaped to safety.

This story is very similar to another real-life incident which was used in a Superbowl ad this year to raise awareness about domestic violence.

The pizza is only available in Australia for now. If and when this thing ever hits the states, prepare for all of our health insurance premiums to rise.

Dude in the UK Got a Phone Company to Give Him Free Pizza for a Year

Dan May, a 24-year-old bizdev manager from Essex, England, was able to take advantage of publicity campaign by phone company O2 this month, in which they promised free pizza to office workers who downloaded their O2 Priority app. May never got his free pizza, and decided to let O2 know about it... complete with a threat to take his business to O2 competitor 3. Companies take bad publicity seriously, and they weren't about to let 3 hijack their own marketing campaign...

Doing God’s work all day can make a man hungry.

In a recent TV interview in Mexico, Pope Francis said that there was one thing he really didn’t like about his job.

“The only thing I would like is to go out one day, without being recognized, and go to a pizzeria for a pizza,” he said.

This past weekend, his wish was – sort of – granted.

Francis motorcade was making its way through Naples on Sunday, when a man named Enzo Cacialli ran up to him and handed him a pie with the words “Il Papa” written out in dough.

Probably not the best idea in the world to sprint towards the popemobile like a maniac, but no one seemed to mind.

Cacialli is co-owner of Pizzeria Don Ernesto, which also gave a pizza to Bill Clinton in 1994.

Here’s a closr look at the Pope’s pie from the Pizzeria “Don Ernesto” Facebook page which was topped with yellow cherry tomatoes and mozzarella di bufala:
